After getting a pair of celebrity endorsements from same-sex marriage advocate Zach Wahls and former Hawkey and pro football player Tim Dwight, Rep. Anesa Kajtazovic, D-Waterloo, has received the endorsement of the United Food and Commercial Workers Union (UFCW) for the open seat in Iowa’s 1st District.
“We are endorsing Representative Kajtazovic because she understands better than anyone the concerns of Iowa’s working families,” UFCW Locals 431 and 1149 said. “She shares the experience of arriving to Iowa as an immigrant with many of our members. She has seen our struggles firsthand and will fight every day to give all Iowans the opportunity to achieve the American Dream.”
“We know she will fight for us because she is one of us,” the union said in its endorsement.
UFCW Locals 431 and 1149 represent over 2,500 workers in the 1st District.
